Cheng Lin Lin (Dental Hygienist)

1) Q: What are your general duties of as a hygienist and what made you choose this work?
Cheng Lin Lin, Dental Hygienist FlushingA: My general duty is to help my patient get to a better oral state, by raising their awareness of oral hygiene and emphasizing the importance of getting their regular six monthly cleaning as well as any scaling or periodontal maintenance they may need. I chose it because I like working with patients, I'm a people person, and I enjoy making a difference in my patients' mouths.

2) Q: What kinds of program did you have to study and where did you study?
A: I graduated from Stony Brook University with a Bachelor's of Health Sciences Degree. I went on to New York University to study dental hygiene, graduating with an Associate's Degree in Dental Hygiene.

3) Q: Can you tell us a little bit about your history here at Preferred Dental Care and how you got to where you are at today?
A: My twin sister worked here and referred me after she got married and moved to Texas - until this day, patients still think I'm her! I've been in this field for five years in different offices and I've never joined an office such as this where everyone makes you feel like family.

4) Q: What's one of your best memories of helping a patient?
A: There are so many! I like helping patients feel more comfortable, especially the ones that have a fear of dentistry. We develop a connection with each other, and build up trust.

5) Q: What advice would you like to share with our patients?
A: Take care of your teeth! Brush, floss, rinse and keep up with your six monthly cleaning!

Yineeta Chitlall (Dental Hygienist)

1) Q: What are your general duties of as a Dental Hygienist and what made you choose this work?
Yineeta Rani Chitlall, Dental Hygienist Flushing A: Provide oral hygiene services, such as prophylaxis (regular cleaning), scaling and root planing (gum cleaning), periodontal maintenance (deep cleaning), as well as aesthetic services such as teeth whitening. I also assess patient's oral condition and educate them on their oral health and hygiene practices. I am, essentially, a "preventionist", in that the services I provide can help patients from getting cavities and gum disease and from losing their teeth. I chose this as I always had a strong passion for helping people, and I discovered that, through this field, I could provide the care that they need to have a healthy, radiant smile.

2) Q: What kinds of program did you have to study and where did you study?
A: I did my undergraduate work at York College in Health Sciences. I was on the Dean's List for York College for three consecutive semesters. I moved on to the New York City College of Technology to pursue the dental hygienist program, graduating with the highest Grade Point Average (GPA).

After I gained license as a Registered Dental Hygienist, I took on a position as the full-time hygienist.

4) Q: What's one of your best memories of helping a patient?
A: Once, I had a patient who was very anxious about getting a cleaning done. I talked her into and through the entire procedure and, afterward, she was very happy and satisfied at having received a pain-free procedure. And there are many more instances where patients are very appreciative of being cared for by gentle hands, their own expectations are greatly exceeded.

5) Q: What advice would you like to share with our patients?
A: Number one, I would strongly urge patients to come in for regular cleanings and checkup, and to follow through with any recommended gum treatment so they can keep their teeth for a very long time. Also, when at home, they should brush, floss and smile regularly!

6) Q: Lastly, what do you like to do in your free time? What are your hobbies?
A: I love traveling, shopping and reading. I really enjoy meeting new people, whether in my practice or in everyday interactions.
